Labe M. Richman
handles all types of criminal cases, both simple and complex. He has represented doctors, lawyers, securities brokers, mortgage brokers, building consultants and business owners. He has handled charges that range from simple drug possession to murder to complex white-collar offenses. These include securities, bank, wire, and mail fraud; immigration fraud, passport fraud, naturalization fraud, DMV fraud (Division of Motor Vehicles), Medicaid and Medicare fraud; computer crimes; environmental crimes; financial structuring; bribery; drug possession; extortion; threats by mail; drug trafficking; burglary; robbery; assault; larcenies; shoplifting; money-laundering; forgery; Taxi Commission fraud; gambling; prostitution; drunk driving; illegal re-entry into the United States and weapons possession. He has a great deal of experience in both New York State and federal courts, and he handles trials, pleas of guilty, appeals and post-conviction motions. When immigrants are his clients, he is very sensitive to the immigration consequences of convictions and tries to handle the case in a way that minimizes the denial of immigration benefits and the probability of deportation or denial of entry to the United States in the future.
His trial practice primarily takes place in state and federal courts in the greater New York City area. He has represented criminal defendants in federal courts in the Southern and Eastern District of New York, which includes courthouses in Manhattan, White Plains, Brooklyn, and Central Islip. He has handled state criminal cases in Manhattan (New York County), the Bronx, Brooklyn (Kings County), Staten Island (Richmond County) and Nassau County (Mineola). His post-conviction work is more wide-ranging geographically, and he has handled cases throughout the state.
